community involvement

When we see you out and about, you will always get a friendly smile or a happy wave. Why? Because we love our community! At McDowell Dentistry, it's all about the people. Having been in Gladstone/Oregon City since 2001, we are proud to be active members of various groups and organizations. We love making a difference in people's lives, both in - and out - of the dental office.

McDowell Dentistry is a huge proponent of supporting our local community/ies, we strive to assist whenever possible. These are some of the sponsorships we have offered.

  • Oregon City High School girls soccer
  • Rex Putnam High School boys baseball
  • Clackamas High School girls & boys lacrosse
  • Special Olympics Polar Plunge
  • Oregon City Preschool silent auction
  • Rex Putnam High School performing arts
  • Clackamas Community College women’s volleyball
  • Gladstone High School boys football
  • Gladstone High School boys baseball
  • Downtown Gladstone festival

In addition to the outreach in our community we have our own in house way of giving back. It’s called McDowell Miracles. Twice a year the team nominates a patient(s) who needs extensive dental work but simply can’t afford it and we collectively vote and award free dentistry.

McDowell Dentistry is a proud member of the Downtown Oregon City Association; you will be seeing us at the major events held throughout the year.
